Expert Group Meeting linking nutrition with the SDGs

19-20 June 2018, UN HQ New York

UNSCN organized an Expert Group Meeting (EGM) linking nutrition with the SDGs that are under review in 2018: SDG6, SDG7, SDG11, SDG12 and SDG15.

The main objectives was to:

  • Provide concrete, actionable nutrition inputs into the 2018 High Level Political Forum (HLPF), linking with the 2030 Agenda.
  • Provide contributions for the CFS45, specifically the lessons learned session about nutrition and/or SDGs. 

After a day and a half of deliberations, messages were delivered to the Member State Briefing on 20 June by Stineke Oenema, UNSCN Coordinator. These outcomes will be further refined and are meantto provide concrete, actionable nutrition inputs beyond the 2018 HLPF and its related UNSCN-CFS event, and to the plenary of the 45th session of the CFS in October 2018.

The background document prepared for this event is to provide an overview of the SDGs under review in 2018 and their interlinkages with nutrition. It is meant to stimulate discussion during the event itself and does not represent an exhaustive overview of the topics. Additional details are provided in the Annexes. None of these texts represent necessarily the views of UNSCN nor its members.
